If they can smell it, they can spell it.


The audience at the Sunday Concert on the Green will find out this week when Leadership Worthington (LW) presents its first "Smelling Bee."

The bee will begin at 6:30 p.m., a half hour before the concert. The event will be a short introduction to the successful adult and youth spelling bees held in March each year at Worthington Kilbourne High School. They are fundraisers for LW.

Linda Smith, co-chairwoman of the bee, said audience participation would be on a volunteer basis.

"Participants will be blindfolded and will smell various items after which they must spell what they smelled," she said. "For each correct spelling, the contestant will win a prize, which could include that item or a gift certificate to a local business."
